Students will create learning spaces that are curiosity-inspiring, thought-provoking, engaging, and honor the needs of children. We will follow a permaculture-inspired process to design an outdoor classroom and learn how to engage students and stakeholders in the process every step of the way. Students in this course will design and implement an actual outdoor classroom at one of the schools in the Forest Grove School District. In this course, students will learn strategies for developing collaborative relationships with the community, parents, and administrators for ongoing care and maintenance of the space, and for creating change in their classrooms, schools, and community.
